Moving from California to Georgia

Moving from California to Georgia

Once you’ve set your mind on moving from California to Georgia, you will realize that you need to prepare some things in advance. Most likely, you are now wondering where to begin. Don’t worry, we are here to help put your thoughts in order, and guide you through the most important steps.

Step one: Focus on your destination

First, you need to mentally prepare yourself for living in another state 2,500 miles away. Thus, discovering more about Georgia is a great place to start. Get an idea about its history, best spots for visiting, job opportunities, and career perspectives, as well as tips to quickly adapt to the Georgian lifestyle.

The Georgian state foundation in a nutshell

In 1729, James Oglethorpe, member of the British House of Commons, noticed that the prisons were flooded with people dying because of the poor conditions and maltreatment. Therefore, in 1732, Oglethorpe asked the British King George II for permission to found a new colony in North America.

This new colony would be a destination for all these prisoners, who would work and get a new life there. It was called Georgia, named to honor King George II. It was the 13th and last British colony that would later proudly not allow slavery.

Georgia highlights and interesting facts

  • Known as the “Peach State.” Georgia has been granted the most delightful nickname. It sounds friendly and inviting. How did the state get its nickname? Georgia is the biggest producer of peaches in the country. It is also the largest producer of pecans, peanuts, and Vidalia onions. However, these do not seem to compete with the “Peach State” nickname. After all, who isn’t fond of a dose of peachy sweetness?
  • Coca Cola is a Georgian courtesy, invented in Atlanta, by the pharmacist John Pemberton. Who knows, if Georgia hadn’t been founded, we wouldn’t taste this special drink.
  • There are some unconventional laws in Georgia. One is in place in Gainesville, “The Poultry Capital of the World.” According to this law, even though chicken is the main dish everywhere in the city, it is forbidden to eat it with a fork. Yes, you heard it right. You can only eat chicken with your hands in Gainesville.
  • Atlanta is not nearly as big as Los Angeles. Yet, if you do not pay attention, you can easily get lost there. The reason is interesting: there are more than 70 roads called Peachtree. Thus, make sure to use your GPS at least in the beginning so that you don’t get confused among all the “peachtrees.”

Living costs and employment opportunities

Georgia is generally cheaper than California. No doubt, this depends on the region. But if we compare the capital, Atlanta, with Los Angeles, the former is 61.2% cheaper. The largest cost component that will be reduced is housing. The real estate rental or purchasing prices are three times higher in LA.

Moreover, the unemployment rate is also lower in Atlanta (4% vs. 5.1% in LA). If you haven’t found a job yet, no worries. Once you are in Georgia, you can directly apply even to large companies such as Home Depot, Coca Cola, UPS, Delta Airlines, among other businesses, which hire hundreds of people each year.

Step two: Learn to get around

The weather, except for some very humid days, is generally enjoyable in Georgia, which often inspires long walks. However, if you have to commute over longer distances, you will need some sort of transportation.

The public transportation is functional, and you can use it, especially as a student, since the metro line connects nine universities. If you are working though, you might want to drive, as the train does not extend to all places.

If you don’t have a car, you may need to get one in Georgia as soon as you move. However, coming from California, my guess is that you already have one. If you think that shipping your car from California to Georgia is difficult because of the distance, my tip would be to consult with our team of professionals now. Shipping a car is easy and the cost to ship a vehicle is not as high as many would expect.

This would not only save extra mileage on your car, but also preserve it from other potential damages, and save you from the dangers of driving across the country. For extra peace of mind, look for auto shipping companies that can offer you white-glove services and insurance as well.

Step three: Start moving

Now that you know a bit more about Georgia and also how to get there, the final step is to put your plan into action. Start arranging the details of your move: set the date, pack your belongings, confirm your housing, choose and finalize your arrangements with the shipping company.

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Truly positive experience

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
